ABOUT THE COMPANY: Lillibett Books was founded by
Elizabeth Rodger, author/illustrator of books in several
different genre, for toddlers to adult ….presented in the
previous pages.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Elizabeth Rodger was born in
Scotland and raised in a small village about twenty miles
from Glasgow. On completing her elementary education
locally, she attended High School in a nearby town and
blossomed in the sports arena, competing in four. At
college level, she matured in track to compete for Scotland.
On graduating from Glasgow School of Art, a world-
renowned independent institution accredited by The
University of Glasgow, her life-time interest in the well-being
of young children was perceived. She returned for a year
of post-graduate study in children’s literature with the
dream of eventually writing and illustrating books for
children. A portfolio of illustration weighted toward animal
characters suitable for youngest readers was developed.
A wanderlust bug took hold and she migrated to New York
where she was hired by Golden Books as a designer. After
the birth of her first son, she continued to work as a
designer on a variety of projects for Golden Books and
other publishing companies on a free-lance basis.
Meanwhile, her dream was set aside to concentrate on her
growing family.  Eventually, her dream caught hold again
and she began the process of submitting her portfolio to
publishing companies for consideration. One day, to her
surprise, there was a call from the head of Golden Books
requesting she draw a Mother Goose in the style of
Richard Scarry. On completion of the work, she received a
beautiful letter from Richard Scarry indicating it was the
'Best Mother Goose Ever'. Thus began a relationship. As
Richard’s eyesight was failing, a way had been found to
produce new books under his name. During the ensuing
years, she wrote and illustrated over forty books in his
style, and received many warm and complimentary letters
from Richard. In one letter he described her work on his
behalf - 'It has been consistently excellent. It is not easy for
an artist to capture another artists's style, to say nothing of
his spirit. You have been magnificent with the many books
you have done, and I hope many more in the future.'-
recognition from a truly generous and delightful gentleman.
After his passing, she picked up on her dream and her
work was published by major companies such as Simon &
Schuster, Random House, Golden Books, Scholastic, etc.
During the years producing Richard Scarry books, she
relocated to Northern New Jersey where she raised her

FROM THE AUTHOR: Having given almost twenty years of volunteer
service for the youth in town, I intend to continue in a different vein by
combining my publishing with an active program involving schools in
the surrounding districts of Northern New Jersey. I will offer
presentations to kindergarten and first grade classes on the
production of a book. As a designer, author, and illustrator, I can show
the physical elements in the progression of the manufacturing. I have
already given several with great success in a local elementary school.  
It was a delight to see awareness enter the eyes of the audience when
they viewed the finished art and the reproduction in the book. Maybe,
some children got hooked on reading.

three sons in the rural town of Sparta. Encouraging her
sons to have the athletic youth she enjoyed, she was
drawn into town activities and was President of the Sparta
Soccer Club for three years, coached for thirteen, the last
eight with the sixteen to nineteen year boys in the premier
division of the Northern Counties Soccer Association.
After the inception of the Sparta Soccer Club, the growth
of participating players, from Elementary through High
School was enormous. With the support of a wonderful
group of parents, she petitioned the Town Council to
develop playing fields. Ninety acres was purchased and is
now Station Park, a wonderful sports complex for a
variety of activities. After stepping down from the board of
the Soccer Club, she served for ten years on the
Recreation Commission appointed by the Town Council.
When Santa came to town, she was allotted the job of
cooking pop-corn to keep the line entertained. She smiles
at memories of angelic little faces returning for a sneaky
second, third, or fourth helping, pushing her to be quite
the bionic cook.
After the years of volunteer effort for the youth in Sparta,
she resigned her position on the Commission to devote
her energy to developing more children’s stories, and the
writing and research of two novels,
BUT FOR FREEDOM
- Across the Sea Beyond Skye,
and the sequel BUT FOR
FREEDOM - A Rebellious Echo of the White Cockade,

fiction based on the history of Scotland and Virginia. And,
to complete her dream, she has established Lillibett
Books to publish a world of little bunnies and little piggies,
reissue popular previous titles, and plan new for young
readers.
